The USS UTAH Commissioning Committee is tasked with raising public and private funds to cover the costs of Commissioning week. This covers the expenses that are incurred to cover expenses customary of the commissioning of a US Navy warship. The funds raised ensure various commissioning events, community outreach and host functions are in place to celebrate the commissioning of our state’s namesake ship.
